In have Win2K, and when i go START->HELP from the desktop i get the following error

hh.exe Application Error

The instruction at "0x5d3303f6" referenced memory at "0x5d8984f0". The memory could not be "read".

When i try and debug it, the following appears in the VC++ debugger


Unhandled exception in hh.exe HHCTRL.OCX: 0xC0000005: Access Violation

I get a similar error when i try and use my MSDN library.

I have tried deleting my hh.dat file, but it makes no difference.

Does anyone know why i cant use any of my help files (this included Word, Excel etc..)


System: AMD700,512MB,Voodoo 3 2000 PCI, Win2k, Office XP

Perhaps this:

Otherwise, you may need to re-install IE or install a newer version of IE.  It's possible your existing copy is trashed.

Sometimes installing another version of the MSDN Library corrupts the Hhcolreg.dat file. This has been known to happen more frequently when the MSDN Library is installed from a network location.
 
Try manually uninstalling the MSDN Library.
